Inflatable Trailer

In my quest to get a light trailer that I can transport in my Caravan, erect at a campsite and use to locally transport my Honwave T38i I have been thinking about some sort of inflatable trailer. I thought about this based on tents that have high pressure tubes as their structure and indeed the very floors in our sibs.


I don't think there would be an issue with getting the materials strong enough to withstand the pressure needed but most likely the pump which would need to be 12v powdered would not be able to reach the desired PSI to keep the whole trailer ridgid.


What are peoples views

I think something along these lines would be just the ticket.

Your tenacity to stick with this is to be admired BP.

I was in a similar position to you and came up with 3 options. Yours is number 4 I didn't think of

1. Take both cars, I tow the van, missus tows the boat.
2. Do two journeys with one car, missus and dog could optionally stay in the van while I collect the boat.
3. Find cheap but secure boat storage near my holiday destination for the summer months or all year round.

None of these are very appealing but are much preferrable to lumping a darned SIB and enduring all the associated setup effort and performance compromises. It was fun at first but now never again.

Sorry, don't follow.

Side note 1: We will be doing more river trips near home this year so remote storage is no longer an option for us. C&RT discontinued the day licenses for 2019 so will be forced into a 30 day Explorer license and I'll be wanting to get my money's worth lol.
Side note 2: RIB upgrade means no more worries that a soft hull will get sliced open by some submerged river object. Yippee!

very interested in this one filled with helium even lighter not sure how much helium is affected by temperature change though you wouldn't want it to go soft on you and risk not arriving.
